I worked on my aunt and uncle’s farm during the summer of 1952.

During the first day, right away while racking hay, I saw this coffin sitting in the field – figures 1 & 2. It looked like a strange piece of farm equipment. It was not more than 10 yards away from me.

When eating lunch, I told my uncle about it. We went out to look at it and it had moved. My uncle said he would contact his neighbors to see who put the coffin in his hay field. I continued racking – figures 3.

After supper that night we went out again and it was still there. When we tried to touch it, it moved slightly and our hands went into it, giving us the feeling of a mild electric shock – figure 4. When we backed away, it lifted off of the ground and hovered with a glow around it and with its headlights dimly shining – figure 5.   

My uncle got very concerned and sent his two boys and me back to the front yard of the farm house. While there wrestling with the boys, we heard strange noises above us. We looked up and saw a few mysterious craft flying about 100 feet above us in luminous haze.

This first day with the coffin set the tone for the rest of the summer. We experienced many short sightings that entire summer, which included a trip to Wyoming and the Southwest United States, also possibly to the Northwest United States (…or that might have been another summer).

My uncle couldn’t understand any of it and he nearly went mad trying to figure it out. He was so upset at the sight of the many crafts and objects that appeared that summer, he thought I was responsible for their appearance.

(It is more than interesting to note that during my UFO research during the 1990s, I found that there was a Middle Age painting that appeared nearly exactly like this coffin-shaped object…a mysterious craft that I encountered many times throughout my life. — believe it or not. Apparently the artist wrote that the painting represented one of  Ancient Egypt’s Celestial Boats that took the pharaohs to the other world.)

When I was about 16 years old, my uncle asked my folks and I to visit him in an Omaha hospital where he was re-cooperating from a hunting accident gunshot wound. While there he asked to speak to me alone. He questioned me about the strange things that occurred at the farm that summer in 1952, but I didn’t recall anything of significance. He was the one who had the photographs showing the booth, me and his kids at Santa Fe, New Mexico and other photos of me on my bicycle when I was young, with the strange disc-shaped craft manifesting in the background:


About jafos

I am a 80 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields...home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, author. Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood...but I really couldn't understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me and them I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 30 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I now can offer you three books and a website (http://www.johnfosterufos.com) to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs. The mysterious intelligences connected to my encounters have told me that they are "the monitors and Keepers of the earth" and are responsible to a hierarchy that includes "the arch angels Michael and Gabriel," who are responsible to the entity we have know as "Christ," who is in charge of this corner of our immense complex universe. They explained further that they are not allowed to interfere in the affairs of humankind except at certain times, when things are going awry or are dangerous. They said this is one of those times, one of those eras. They continued to state that if they hadn't interfered in the past, we would have destroyed ourselves...and that if they don't interfere now and in the future, we will indeed destroy ourselves. Strictly for your own benefit, take a look at the information here on http://www.johnfosterufos.com and read the books I've written in order to understand in some detail what this is all about. The website and books can give you insight into how so-called UFO encounters have affected our sciences, religions, and history...and how they most likely will affect our future.

    Hi John I had a very frightening and beautiful experience some 20 years ago. It was just a dream but it left an impact on my life. I think about it everyday with the fear and excitement that it will come back. Without going into extreme detail about the dream, it was about 7 coffins( well they were in the form of a coffin with a human sculpt to them) lined up up in the configuration of the letter H. There is more to the story but every now and then I find myself trying to research this vision and experience. I remember it in a very detailed manor. I dont know if this has any relation or what, but it was interesting to see that someone has experienced the same/similar “coffin” experience.

      Hi Dimitri,
      I understand a little about what you are going through. You have my good thoughts and sympathy. When my memories came back, I would have a sequence I recalled clearly. I would then try to remember what happened just before the memory and then just after. I was careful not to induce imagination into my recollections…and the full picture was soon exposed. I was careful to make sure it fit with my other memories of that time. I hope the experience doesn’t haunt you and I wish you nothing but the very best…..John
